Hunter's Country House Location Map

Hunters Country House is an exclusive family owned retreat, and part of the Relais & Chateaux group of properties. Only 10 km from Plettenberg Bay, this gracious original homestead is surrounded by beautiful gardens, and framed by the majestic Tsitsikamma mountains.

Originally called Baia Formosa, or Beautiful Bay, by the early Portuguese, Plettenberg Bay is home to some of the best beaches along the Garden Route. Set around a curving horseshoe bay, schools of playful dolphins and resident Orca and Bryde's whales are often seen, and between July and December, the migratory Southern Right whales come to the bay to calf.

The bygone era of opulent elegance is reflected in the decor of the romantic and beautifully appointed candle-lit dining room, in the main manor house.

Here, guests can enjoy superb cuisine, prepared by the team of acclaimed chefs.

Activities in and around the area include bird watching, forest trails, horse-riding, sailing and canoeing, mountain biking, tennis and golf, diving and whale watching.

In the extensive gardens surrounding the manor house, the 27 luxurious one-bedroom cottages and suites have been designed for absolute comfort and privacy.

All have fireplaces, satellite TV, mini bar, bath and separate shower, and a veranda.

Whether breakfasting in the sun-drenched conservatory, lazing by the poolside, or enjoying the endless golden beaches of Plettenberg Bay, guests are assured of a truly memorable stay.
